If you’re around: Shake Shack at noon, followed by Mermaid Parade at Coney Island. Bring a swim suit.

(via nconaway) “Good writing dies at the hands of search engine optimization.” Chris Weingarten’s speech entitled Music is Math. Among other things, he talks (quite humorously) about how the internet’s obsession with F1RST has ruined critical music review and allowed the indie rock circle jerk to continue. I watched it twice, I will probably watch it more.
These are the conversations I strive for
Kurt: this latest copy
Kurt: wtf happened?
Caroline: ah what do you mean whats wrong with it?
Kurt: Jesus CHRIST
Kurt: Where to start!
Kurt: Seriously, where should I start? I can't find anything wrong.
Kurt: It's all good
Kurt: I sent a quickie email to the same affect
Kurt: Like it really came together
Kurt: I especially like the Grady white
Kurt: the TV and MM look good
Kurt: I was just trying to give you a scare with the earlier messages
Kurt: I can't be giving you all good news
Kurt: Oh, your painting. Brook hates it.
Dear New York friends, I am in the market for...
I’m thrilled to say that there is, unless something goes terribly wrong, a reason for me to be living and working in NYC for this summer (and beyond if I’m lucky). If you or someone you know is looking for a roommate, or maybe wants to join forces and find a place of our own, let’s do this. I am chill and pay rent on time and shower regularly and don’t mind living with boys...
This video (via) was a favorite among my group of friends back in high school. But I’ll come back to that. On Sunday, Josh and I were wandering through Prospect Park on the way to the Brooklyn Lyceum when we came across about a dozen people playing four square. Sensing our interest, they asked us to join them, and we did! We played some hardcore but very sportsmanlike four square for about...

everyoneelseisupstairs: … Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline. 1. You’re awesome 2. I’m glad you wrote this, because it merits an answer. I’ve made a point throughout my life of seeking out people who did things I wanted to do, people who had, in their own way, won at life, and… Hey. Read Ronen’s blog. He’s awesome, and you can be too.

Kids Build Their Own Three-Story Playground →
Really interesting piece about how kids learn, test for safety, and are ultimately safer on this playground than on regular playgrounds due to perceived danger.
